''IVhen a deed is done for Freedom, through the
broad earth's aching breast
Runs a thrill of joy prophetic, trembling on from
east to westy
And the slave, ivhere'er he coivers, feels the soul
within him climb
To the awful verge of manhood, as the energy
Of a century bursts fulj blossomed on the thorny
stem of Time.

Neiv occasions teach neiu duties; Time makes
ancient good uncouth;
They must upivard still and onward, ivho would
keep abreast of Truth ;
Lo, before us gleam her camp-fires ! we ourselves
must Pilgrims be,
Launch our Mayfioiver, and steer boldly through
the desperate wilder sea,
Nor attempt the Future's portals with the Past's
blood-rusted key, ' '
